Denis Pérez

Denis Perez’s work is focused on the look in of the human being, on the portrait, in order to bring out some specifics features.
“…With his small bronze characters, he has already shown us the man’s fragility, his weakness like he was perched on an uncertain equilibrium. But don’t be deceived; although we want to believe in, or whatever it is said about, the man stay a small thing who, confronted with pain and injustice, easily use to loose his equilibrium, etc… He is as strong as delicate, just like crystal, and intended to be dust. He gives to us his fragility, offering the mirror of truth, the reflection of the rare, so precious because it is real and alive…”
Nowadays he is still on the road, pursuing his quest, going to the essential and stripping the surface, until that traces and forms appear to show up an interior reality: “between apparition and disappearance, to be in its spiritual and cosmic dimension” Come near, tilt on and observe, dare to pay attention and reveal: shadow, silhouette, envelope…and traces become more precise, affirm themselves to drive us to the universe inside each character
